The men on the road here are making things hum. There was a very large rock in the centre of the road-a kind of Spion Kop-but our " George " got the " lyddite " to work at it. He had to use small charges, however, for Mr. Leet's barn and stable were beneath the rock, and, had he not been careful, the buildings would have been shot away as well as the rock. As it was, one man came close to being hit. A double shot was about to be fired. The signal wac given, and, after the first shot burst forth, the man moved out from his hiding-place, when bang went the second shot, and, as it was within two yards of him, he had a narrow escape...

The Hawkesburg Herald. WINDSOR, FRIDAY, OCT. 3, 1902. Day Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 3 October 1902
"WlN'DSOlt. FUI DAY, OCT. ¡i, li>02. Day Labor. Contract versus day labor is an old controversy ; but there are several pulilic works in this district which stand as an argument in favor of the latter. We might instance, as au example, the work of the drainage of Boggy Wheeney, referred to, in another column, by a representative of this journal who had a trip through the district this week. No contractor would have 1 taken on the job alluded to af the price for which the work was done ; no contractor would have carried it out k'tter had he got double the figure. In the case of a tendera man would have wanted, above his outlay for wages, a percentage for risk, plus a percentage for his profit, both of which, it is obvious, have been saved. The work has been faithfully executed, at a minimum of cost ; there has been no sweating "in "wages ; local men have had their picking out of it, in preference to impíyáB¿labor ; the Department is ^^^^?^^^^^^the deal, and so are ??^^^^^^^?^^eopl...
